Christians in Nigeria are praying for the safe return of a student held captive by Muslim Fulani herdsmen who attacked a Christian missions school in Nigeria’s Plateau state.

Four students were kidnapped Thursday from The King’s School, a Christian missions school established by Calvary Ministries, in Gana Ropp village in Plateau state’s Barkin Ladi County. While three of the kidnapped students escaped after security forces deployed to the area, one student remains captive, Morning Star News reported.

The herdsmen broke into the rear fence at the school to enter the compound and abduct the students.

Bayo Famonure, head of the school, was quoted as saying that the student who remains captive "phoned us to say they were already in the Fulani herdsmen’s camp, barely 20 minutes after he was captured and taken away.”
